Audrey Chen & Phil Minton Voice Performance

Thursday, February 1, 2018 @ 8:00pm - 9:30pm

Location: Grant Recital Hall

With primary focus on the interplay between the uttered sounds of the mouth and vocal chords, Minton and Chen plumb the depths of their most inherent and bodily instruments. Their improvisations are fearless, fragile, hungry, passionate, riotous, ululating and animalistic, yet are also in all respects, human. They express, pronounce and intensely articulate (in their fashion) the many nuanced shades of their individual and collaborative conditions.
